In Our Backyard: Sex Trafficking and Exploitation

Originally posted on SIUE Women's Studies Program:

Today’s post comes from Criminal Justice professor Erin Heil. She began studying domestic human trafficking in 2008 and has since published numerous articles on the subject, as well as the book, Sex Slaves and Serfs: The Dynamics of Human Trafficking in a Small Florida Town.  She shares this post with us in anticipation of the upcoming panel, “Sex Trafficking and Exploitation,” co-sponsored by the SIUE Women’s Studies and Peace Studies Programs on Oct. 21 at 12:30 in the Morris University Center.  At this event Prof. Heil will be joined by Congressman John Shimkus, FBI Intelligence Analyst Derek Velazco, Rescue and Restore Coordinator Kristen Eng, and Covering House representatives Deidre Lhamon and Lindsay Ellis.  The event is free and open to the community.

“I was taken from my doorstep…I was sold for sex with men in exchange for money and drugs. I was forced to work out of motels, brothels, prostitution houses…

The #Truthy Project: Federal Agency Wants to Study #Social #Pollution by Analyzing Twitter

Originally posted on pundit from another planet:

The NSF has already poured nearly $1 million into Truthy. To what end? Why is the federal government spending so much money on the study of your Twitter habits?

Ajit Paipai writes: If you take to Twitter to express your views on a hot-button issue, does the government have an interest in deciding whether you are spreading “misinformation’’?

“The concept seems to have come straight out of a George Orwell novel.”

If you tweet your support for a candidate in the November elections, should taxpayer money be used to monitor your speech and evaluate your “partisanship’’?

My guess is that most Americans would answer those questions with a resounding no. But the federal government seems to disagree. The National Science Foundation , a federal agency whose mission is to “promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity and welfare; and to secure the national defense,” is funding…

WHAT’S TANKING #OBAMACARE ?

Originally posted on Desert Musings:

I guess deep down we all knew Obamacare wouldn’t work. I think even Obama himself realized it. After all, he’s the smartest guy in the room. I’m sure if I can figure it out with a mere bachelor’s degree from a fine but not outstanding Midwest non-Ivy League institution like Ohio University (NOT Ohio State!), that this Harvard trained Lawyer with impeccable grades and credentials (oh…wait…we don’t know that because he had his transcripts sealed, didn’t he?), would be able to figure it out. It just didn’t add up. You can’t charge the American public enough money, even if you spread it around where you can get the cost of health care to go down, and yet have everybody covered. Even if you give them subsidies.

And Bobo just never learned that lesson. I can understand Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid not knowing it or being able to figure it out…

You Know America Is In Trouble When You Have To Depend On The Likes Of Google And Apple To Protect Your Freedoms

Originally posted on Asylum Watch:

The march toward an Orwellian police state is picking up speed. From NSA spying, to Swat Teams swarming a company’s offices because they may or may not be using appropriate accounting practices, to the EPA ordering a family to tear down their house because it was built where mud puddles sometimes for making it a protected wet-lands, to the DOJ tapping the phones of journalists, to citizens losing all rights of due process if “suspected” of being a terrorist, and much more, your rights, as supposedly protected by our constitution and its Bill of Rights, are being eroded away by the day. More and more our government is treating us as if we are all potential enemies of the all-powerful state. Spying: eavesdropping on our phone conversations, reading our emails, and reading our text messages, and reading our twitter comments, is the worst infringement of our rights because, of course…

The Great Disconnect: The Whole, Ugly Truth About Barack Hussein Obama

Originally posted on Kingsjester's Blog:

PROLOGUE:

Beginning the morning of June 30th, 2010, I posted a 4 part series, titled “The Great Disconnect” about the current President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama. ( And no, Liberals. Using Obama’s middle name does not make me a RAAACIIIST. You guys sang about it . mm mmm mmmm)

As we watch his second term continue to self-destruct, while his Signature Legislation, Obamacare, does its impression of the “sinking of the Titanic”, and, previously unseen diseases strike down our citizens, I believe that now, more than ever, as we watch the Leader of the Free World become more and more desperate to save “his legacy”, it is appropriate to review who Barack Hussein Obama is, beginning with his early life, including those who influenced and guided him, and ending with his speech at the 2004 Democrat National Convention, which led to Obama being anointed as the Democrat’s  new…

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman and Sharia? I've spent 12 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women
